Ahoy, 7th Sea Fans!

This page contains the current production schedule for the 7th Sea: Second Edition Kickstarter.


All of our sourcebooks go through the same stages on the way to the printer. Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Outlining: we’re working out the basic structure of the book, including new mechanics, Nations, and other setting materials.
  2. Writing: all of our writers are hard at work constructing the text!
  3. Dev Editing: our editors have 80%+ of the text and are working to refine it.
  4. Copy Editing: the text is done; copy editors are working to refine the text.
  5. Layout: our layout staff is working to layout the book and the art alongside it.
  6. Proofing: our proofers are looking over the book to catch any final errors.
  7. At Printer: we’ve sent the files over to the printer; we’ll ship them soon!

With that list in mind, here’s where we are with all of the 7th Sea sourcebooks, including the estimated PDF release date. Once a book is released on PDF, we expect to have it out to backers roughly six to eight weeks later, i.e. when we get it from the printer. Here’s where we stand with our promised sourcebooks:
